Grahic Jump Location
Equivalence ratio near the spark plug for varied injection timings
Grahic Jump Location
Equivalence ratio near the spark plug for tumble ratio varied from 0 to 2
Grahic Jump Location
Comparison of velocity distribution (left) and equivalence ratio contours (right) at the point if ignition (15 deg BTDC) for different tumble strengths and injection timings. Case B: tumble ratio=0, injection at 40 deg BTDC; Case C: tumble ratio=2, injection at 40 deg BTDC; Case D: tumble ratio=1.0, injection at 60 deg BTDC).
Grahic Jump Location
Consecutive snapshots of velocity profiles (left) and equivalence ratio contours (right) shown at (a) 30 deg BTDC, (b) 20 deg BTDC, and (c) 150 deg BTDC. Case A: baseline configuration with injection timing=40 deg BTDC and tumble ratio=1.0.
Grahic Jump Location
Vertical and horizontal views of combustion chamber, and perspective view of the grid at TDC
Grahic Jump Location
Visualization of computed spray droplet distribution using LPB model (left) and TAB model (right) every 2 ms starting at t=2 ms. Experimental spray images 23 at 1, 4, and 6 ms for the modeled conditions
